It’s 1962 and teenagers Tracy Turnblad and Penny Pingleton are obsessed with the Corny Collins Show. When the chance to dance on the show arrives, Tracy quickly takes the opportunity and her skills attract not only Corny Collins, but also the teenage heart throb, Link Larkin. When scheming Amber Von Tussle and her mother plot to destroy Tracy, it turns to chaos. Tracy decides it’s not fair that the black kids can only dance on the Corny Collins show once a month. With the help of Penny, her parents, and her new friends Seaweed, Link, and Motormouth Maybelle, she’s determined to integrate the show… without denting her ‘do!

A frenetic case of mistaken identity with more twists than a corkscrew.

Bernard’s plans for a romantic rendezvous with his chic Parisian mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own…setting the stage for a collision course of mistaken identities and outrageous infidelities, with more twists than a corkscrew. The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp through the French countryside.

Sign Painters – Not Rated — 120 minutes

“SIGN PAINTERS, which has been put together with equal parts affection and skill by directors Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, is fresh and passionate and unexpected.” – Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
We see them almost every day without a second thought. Weathered by time, distinct characteristics shining through, hand-painted signs are a product of a fascinating 150 year-old American history. What was once a common job has now become a highly specialized trade, a unique craft struggling with technological advances. Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney and Stephen Powers. These vanguards of unseen originality are leading a renaissance with a keen creative purpose and exemplify the working class American success story. Sign Painters celebrates those keeping the tradition intact with a bespoke approach and appreciation for a balance between art and commerce.

Mary Martin Gallery presents a Special Event

August 2-3, 2014

An Upcoming summer event will bring the community together to marvel at the transformation of the Old Mt. Pleasant Academy, located at 140 Hibbben Street.  A unique collaboration between the Mary Martin Gallery of Fine Art in Charleston and the Hunnicutt Real Estate Team, will convert the Old Mt Pleasant Academy for one weekend only into an art gallery.   Art lovers, history buffs, and those who simply enjoy a good time should plan to drop in from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, August 2nd or Sunday, August 3rd.

Works by renowned artists such as Judy Fuller, Elaine Hruska, John Hoffman, DAB, Ramon Pujol and others will adorn the walls.   The August event will be an opportunity for the community to once again fall in love with a building that had, over the previous decades, fallen into disrepair and become an unfortunate eyesore.  As the complete remodel nears completion, Matt, Cathy, and the rest of the Hunnicutt Team are inviting friends back to the storied school.

For more information contact Elaine Hruska 843-723-0303 and elaine@marymartinART.com  or Cathy Hunnicutt, Realtor at 843-814-4378

The Village Rep Presents Happy in the Poor House

August 14-17, 2014

7:30 p.m. on August 14-16 & 5:00 p.m. on August 17

Paulie “The Pug” is a Coney Island dreamer…just one MMA fight away from the big time. If only he could keep his wife from bedding her ex-husband, his brother-in-law from going to the slammer, and his best friend from taking a bite out of his neck, he’d be on top of the world. A raucous, irreverent, action-packed comedy full of weak wrists and strong hearts, Happy in the Poorhouse is an unsanitized story of love, sex, and chasing after dreams even when you’ve got a black eye and a broken spirit.

*For ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY. Contains explicit language and sexual situations
